Scheriproct ointment

The two active ingredients of Scheriproct Ointment are cinchocaine hydrochloride and prednisolone hexanoate. Cinchocaine is a local anaesthetic, and it works by hampering the pain messages pathway located in the nerve fibres. This medicine relieves pain and itching. Prednisolone, on the other hand, is a corticosteroid and responsible for alleviating inflammation. Scheriproct Ointment is a suitable product for treating internal and external piles.

There are many known ways to treat piles or haemorrhoids. Some sources say that witch hazel, as an anti-inflammatory can reduce pain and itching. Aloe vera gel has been suggested as well, having been historically used to treat the condition. Others say that a warm bath with Epsom salt can soothe the irritation caused by piles. The list is quite long. However, if you’re looking for a faster, easier and clinically-proven way to treat haemorrhoids, you can resort to using Scheriproct Ointment.

How effective is Scheriproct Ointment?

Scheriproct Ointment is a useful product for relieving and treating internal and external piles.  A study published on Onlinelibrary.com cited that non-invasive treatments for haemorrhoids such as topical agents and suppositories are recommended as initial treatments for the condition, along with various anal and perianal diseases. This study indicated that local anaesthetics such as cincochaine and corticosteroids such as prednisolone (the active ingredients in Scheriproct Ointment) are effective for the symptomatic treatment of haemorrhoids.

How does Scheriproct Ointment work?
